 E-Budo.com - Group training and the battlefield
By the time of Sengoku, the use of spears and guns were well established in most daimyo armies, because it did take less time, money and effort to train an ashigaru or conscript to use a spear or a rifle than to train a warrior to use a sword and horse.
During the Sengoku period, the samurai were the political and military leaders of Japan who clearly prided themselves on their martial prowess and accomplishments on the battlefield and yet they seem to have left most of the fighting in battle up to masses of low-class ashigaru.
By the sengoku period, the upper ranks of the bushi order--the group most people associate with the term "samurai"--were officers whose primary task was directing the fighting.

The ancestors of Tokugawa Ieyasu, the founder of the Edo bakufu, were the Matsudaira, a Sengoku daimyo family from the mountainous region of Mikawa province (in present Aichi prefecture) who had built up their base as daimyo by advancing into the plains of Mikawa.
On the one hand, the seclusion policy was instrumental in enabling the Tokugawa bakufu to establish a prolonged peace of nearly 300 years; yet on the other, it has been argued that this simply prolonged a rigid feudal system to an extent unknown elsewhere in the world.

Officially, the Warring States period was between early-to-mid 1500s and about 1600.

A certain amount of similarity to the real world of that time is desirable, and the supernatural should be subtle enough that it wouldn't make the customs, beliefs, and expectations of the people of the period different from what they were.
